Etter’s Greenhouse: New owner ready with flowers, gardening tips

TAZEWELL, Va. — The new owner of the former Buchanan Greenhouses in Tazewell County is hoping to carry on a tradition that has been in the community for more than 25 years.

Stewart Etter, 28, of Witten Valley in Tazewell, Va., has bought the Buchanan Greenhouses and is excited for what this spring holds.

“I am hoping to be able to put my own touch on the greenhouse this year,” Etter, a graduate of Mississippi State University with a degree in agriculture economics, said.

Etter changed the name to Etter’s Greenhouse when he bought the business from Mac Buchanan, who owned the greenhouse more than 25 years.

“He approached me about buying it and wanted to see it carried on,” Etter said. “It is nice to see young people in the community taking over businesses that have been in business for a long time. It’s like carrying on a tradition.”

Etter, who also owns and operates the Pisgah Pumpkin Patch, is excited to be expanding more into the agriculture business.

“I like agriculture in all forms,” Etter said.

All seven greenhouses at Etter’s Greenhouse are packed with a variety of flowers, trees and vegetables.

“I am interested in being able to help first-time gardeners as well the experienced gardeners,” Etter said. “I love seeing young people coming out and getting involved in growing their own gardens.”

Etter is knowledgeable about all types of plants and will be able to provide information on how, when and where to plant your flowers or gardens.

“I hope for a good season and I hope to be able to expand in the future,” Etter said. “I appreciate the support from the community and I am excited to be able to provide flowers and vegetables to everyone,” Etter said.

Etter’s Greenhouse is located at 214 West Pine St., Tazewell, Va.
